Light Of Pure Life - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

</>Went to a shop to look at crystal lamps when my
eyes were caught by crystal lace fabrics perfect
for creating the beautiful gown I always dream
of, formed when I walk in the sea splashing
with my feet till sprays of crystal drops
cover me in silver white layers

I wondered how to make a dress from liquid crystal
to shimmer and shine wherever I went, now having
found the perfect crystal lace my dream is fulfilled –
though my book on Secret Tools for Six-Sensory
Living recommends seeking psychic healing
through the power of crystals

as the only dream worth cherishing; but a crystal
dress seems more attractive to me than people
who try to sell the psychic power of crystals -
only charlatans use these devices - I love
New Age ideas but without evidence of
their success, crystals remain

enchanting symbols representing the beauty,
clarity and light of pure life…

    This is fine writing to some level of diction, but the stanzas read like small paragraphs. Try to have lines that resemble poetic form, not sentences like it is the case here; otherwise a fine and good poem.

    Take care now
